Re: [APD] Goldfish, etc
One distinction between humans and non-humans that I like is the claim that
only humans have a capacity to co-ordinate a co-ordination of future
actions. When I say to my dog "Hey, Bo, let's go for a walk", he knows what
I mean and we can co-ordinate our respective immediate actions. (yes, yes,
I know there is a vast philosophical literature about "know" and "mean". Bo
appears to have adopted Wittgenstein as his philosophical guide)
However, when I say "Bo, let's go for a walk after breakfast tomorrow", the
required co-ordination of future actions is beyond him. He doesn't show up
for the appointment.
Is there anyone here who is interested in low-tech planted aquariums?
